Etsome Dairy Farm

(Now a private house)

Start from the roundabout by the Royal Oak. Go down Etsome Terrace past the Fire Station and school. At the end, go through the squeeze and down Brockle Hill. Here is a marvellous view over the Cary Valley with Dundon Beacon beyond. Follow the road down the steep slope past the sewage works and onto a T junction just past Etsome Dairy Farm (now a private house). Turn left and go up the hill looking at the view to the left across to Littleton. Continue to the end of the road until it joins up with Cary Way. Continue ahead and turn right into Etsome Terrace, and so back to the start.


A longer walk may be taken by adding a circular walk from Etsome Dairy Farm.

Turn right, cross the river Cary, then just before Etsome Farm, go left over a footbridge and follow the path alongside the river. Follow this until you come to a tarmac road by Somerton Door bridge. Turn right, then take the next turning right, which is Sale Piece Drove. Go along the drove until you reach a T junction. Turn right, which will soon bring you back to Etsome Farm. Carry on up the hill and back as described above.
